Immaculata University Welcomes First-Year Students
Immaculata University will welcome 346 incoming students, both freshmen and transfer students, to its College of Undergraduate Studies on move-in day, Friday, August 26. On Saturday, all first-year students will be dedicating a day of service to help revitalize the local community. On Sunday, upperclassmen move back to campus and classes begin Monday, August 29.
Prior to their First-Year Experience course, a mandatory one-credit course about adjusting to college life and growing intellectually and personally, students were asked to read one of two books over the summer: "The Alchemist," by Paul Coelho, or "Timequake," by Kurt Vonnegut. These books will be the focus of small group discussions, large group events, and an essay contest during the semester.
